Basic Dental Care for a Beautiful Smile
Created on March 15, 2015
Did you know that oral health is not just important to your teeth and gums but can also help protect your overall health?
When shopping, choose a soft-bristled toothbrush. This will help avoid damage to the teeth and gums. After three months, or if you become ill, change your brush.
Use toothpaste with fluoride in order to protect your teeth from cavities and strengthen your enamel.
Flossing is one of the most important steps in preventing cavities and gum disease – but is also one of the most frequently skipped steps. Be sure to floss at least once a day, preferably after every meal. Disposable flossing picks make it easier than ever to floss on the go.
In addition to your daily at home care for your smile it is important to visit the dentist twice a year for treatment. Preventative care includes a professional cleaning, a thorough examination, dental x-rays and even complimentary services such as whitening and fluoride treatment.
